With Plazma, there’s really no more effective way other than sticking to the label use. But you can play around a bit with dosing depending on the training intensity and volume. A day of triceps and abs might warrant one scoop, while a monster leg day with 10x10 squats and heavy, high rep leg presses might call for three scoops.
With Mag-10, there’s more room for variety because it’s not “just” workout nutrition. Like the label says, a serving after training can definitely reinforce recovery, but it’s great during the day too. A favorite is having a serving very first thing in the morning or very last thing at night, so your body either gets punched in the face with quality nutrition right as you wake up or it can soak up the nutrients overnight and compound with the natural recovery benefits of a good night’s sleep.

For sure. The Pulse Feast is one specific way to use Mag-10 as a big part of a serious fat loss plan. But even using it once or twice a day on top of a good nutrition plan can move you in the right direction.
It’ll depend a bit on the details of how you’ve set up the 5/3/1, but it’s definitely possible to use 5/3/1 for fat loss, even though it’s essentially a “performance-based” plan. Try asking in Wendler’s 5/3/1 forum for more input, possibly straight from Wendler.
Basically, as long as you don’t go overboard with the accessory work, don’t go crazy with the PR sets, and do stick with the consistent, hard conditioning, you should be all set. This article talks more about how to balance the 5/3/1 plan for different results.
